Almost two years ago I was having sciatica pain and other problems - couldn't get comfortable sitting or standing. About this time I read Dr. Contreras' personal story in a newspaper ad. I was impressed, and the timing was right, so I marched off to see him. After a thorough examination and evaluation and a treatment program of six months, I was a new woman! Actually, I finished the treatment program a month early and then signed up for the on-going maintenance program. In about two years I have not had a cold or sore throat or any other illness (except a clumsy fall and a broken ankle and ribs). My acid reflux is gone, I have more energy, my one hip is no longer higher than the other, the range of motion in my neck is better, and my overall health is better. It is so important to keep one's body in line and tuned up to keep us running in top notch condition. Dr. C. is THE BEST! He is very knowledgable, friendly, caring, compassionate, considerate, kind and gentle and I am so blessed to have him as my D.C. His receptionist, Sarah, is efficient, friendly and vivacious and a wonderful asset to his office - which is inviting, warm, clean, and a pleasure to walk into. Appointments are scheduled such that there is literally no waiting. Thank you for keeping me in good working order. You ROCK!!

I met Dr. Contreras when my 15 year old son started complaining about back pain. I was expecting Dr. "C" to find something and it would be taken care of. He did find some scoliosis but I was not expecting him to find something even more surprising. He found that due to the extreme forward positioning of my son's neck - this was causing stress on the nerves surrounding the spinal cord in this area and as a result - the nervous system and signals being sent to the brain from this area were in a constant state of stress. Dr. C can explain it much better than I can but my point is what has transpired as a result of this finding and subsequent treatment. Dr. C started working to straighten out this area of his spine. I have noticed a huge improvement in my son's state of mind. He is less anxious, more focused, more relaxed, and is sleeping better at night. He is doing better in school and is all around a happier person. I never would have thought that the position of one's head and neck can have such an affect on someone's overall well being.
While Dr. C was treating my son, I decided to let him examine me. I am a 44 year old woman with no back problems at all. I have never had back pain or any reason to think I needed to see a chiropractor. But I was there anyway so I conceded to an XRay. I was shocked when I saw the results. My spine was a big S. I had two severe curvatures and a very severe case of scoliosis. I called my mother and asked her if I was ever checked as a child and she said no because back then, they didn't check for that. I immediately started getting adjustments because if I didn't - as I grow older - I would start having back problems guaranteed. I would have had a degenerative condition that most likely would have resulted in surgery and a life time of pain medications. I am SOOOO happy that I listened to Dr. C and let him take an Xray of my back. Everyone should have it done as a preventative measure. I want to grow old pain free. THANK YOU DR. CONTRERAS!
